Question about Yamaha Xv 250 Virago S Motorcycles
2006 250 Yamaha virago has always started fine. Started it again today and then it wouldnt start 10minutes later. Engine is turning over however its like no gas is making it into the engine. There is gas. Have tried the primary and reserve tanks
Had same problem with a suzuki savage...my fix was to tie two overflows together with a t joint...
..its an airflow problem of some sort... also, some bikes have to run on reserve or prime always...its not a perfect system

is it just out of winter storeage? could be gum in the carbs, get some fuel system cleaner additive and put it in the gas. run it on idle and get it hot, leave to stand overnight and try again. you are not getting enough gas and when you open it up you are giving more air but not getting enough gas. try changing fuel filter too.

1 maybe there is a diaghfram tear at your carb only 1 is funtioning and 1 block engine is running but under power
2.check your fuel line from tank to fuel filter then pump then carb
probally there is a debrie stuck in the pipe line or in your tank

If it is possible to start at all. Fresh fuel fresh engine oil good battery. You may have the following problems; Corroded and blocked carburetor fuel system, bad wire connections piston ring set up.... I hope it was kept indoors and the fuel was drained out before it was left sitting. Good luck, they are nice bikes.
